    Man, I've just encountered the weirdest bug so far, it made me virtually invincible. I was in the third area near B where there is a long hall, they had just destroyed B and started moving to the next area and I was the last guy there, so I saw one guy and started sprinting toward him, the moment I stabbed him in his face another guy showed up, I expected to die but for some reason he started shooting me and a pushed toward him, killing him to with the knife, I kept doing this until I killed around 8 of them by just pushing toward them and stabbing constantly, sadly in the end one guy came behind me and trophy-killed me ;(

    I tried doing it again but it didn't work.

    The quick knife is still there but it takes like 2 hits to kill now but sometime it takes 1 hit......dunno how does that work.

    If you come up behind somebody, it's supposed to be a 1-hit kill with an animation for knifer and knifee. Other than that, I'm not sure how it works.

    That statement contradicts itself.

    My old setup (Q6600 @ stock, 4GB DDR2-800, Radeon HD5850) handled 1680x1050 with everything on high, and maybe 2x AA. I got a constant 40-60 fps when minimal action was going on, but once explosions and physics kicked in, I could feel it chugging at 20 or so. For most people that's still playable, and I managed, but it's just not optimal. Once I upgraded to my current setup, I can now run it completely maxed and get easily the same fps, with no dips.

    Despite what people say, in games like BC2\BF3, CPU does make a big difference. I have a friend that has a Phenom II X4 and a GTX470 and gets worse performance than I do with his comp despite having a noticably faster GPU.

    In Bad Company 2 you ever kill someone with a non-lock on knife? That non-lock knife doesn't always kill, I have slashed people and been shot down by them and they are at like 50%, you have to land it right to kill them with it. So I'm assuming the quick knife is much like that.

    I'm not a big rush fan. I'm just enjoying it more then I did in BF:BC2.
    I like conquest hell of a lot more.
    when they announced BF3 I was hoping for a new mode to take over rush.
    I think rush is there for the people that like smaller maps and fast game play. Nothing wrong with having different modes for different people.

    Now about the tank/apc topic.
    I complete agree needs to be boosted a little.
    Remember real life doesn't = fun. Its about balance. I'm not say real life stuff isn't fun just not always and not for every game.
    I think we all know this and Dice knows this.

    Overall there are things I like and things I don't like but no doubt in my mind that BF3 will be excellent when it comes out.

    I think my setup will play BF3 just fine. I may upgrade to a SB setup but not until socket 2011 comes out and I see the performance.

    I wished I could have played the alpha but im sure the beta will be a lot better.

    Awesome man. I sure hope other people did too. DICE is pretty decent on listening to the community.

    Yeah really wish I coulda played this more but the combo of non-custom keys plus unfamiliarity with map and mechanics kinda killed the fun for me.

    Ah well beta soon enough and ended up having a great time with BC2. Found good matches and did well.

    I didn't test anything really. Except crawling prone and dying lmao

    I had one 4 and 1 streak there but all total luck. Like the headshot I got on one dude I couldn't even see as we were both in the bushes.

    It's an open beta across all 3 platforms. Apparently will not be the first one (MOH LE owners) but at some point in September they open the gates, so to speak.
